Travelling with Intrepid for my first time in Chile and Argentina was a great choice, especially since I don't speak the language or know much about either of these countries. Intrepid and our local leader/guide, Valentina took care of all the little and big details like best places to stay, what to do/see/eat and the transport so all I have to do is show up. The meals that were included were great as well and gave us a chance to eat like the locals. But what I also like about Intrepid is that not all meals are included. We have to the freedom to eat wherever we wanted and with whomever (but we ended up going out with our group most of the time, lol!) We had a smaller group so this really gave us a chance to get to know everyone and bond. I came away from this trip with a better understanding of Chile and Argentina and some new friends. A total win-win all around.

I loved the variety offered from wine tasting in Mendoza to Polo Playing in Buenos Aires. The colourful Valparaiso to the mighty Iguazú Falls that we walked around, sailed under and flew over - just spectacular. So many first time experiences all wrapped up in a holiday of a lifetime.
